The drug test results for Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. are in.
Tyson and Jones shared the ring back on November 28. The exhibition match was held inside an empty Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The boxing legends fought for eight, two-minute rounds. No official winner was declared and the unofficial WBC scoring had this match a draw.
Both Tyson and Jones agreed to drug testing for this fight under VADA. According to the test results, neither man was juiced to the gills.
ESPN’s Marc Raimondi provided the details on his Twitter account.

This was the first time Tyson stepped inside the boxing ring for an exhibition match since 2006. He took on Corrie Sanders in what was supposed to be the start of a tour. No winner was declared in the fight but it was clear that Tyson was dominant.
As for Jones, he had less ring rust to shake. Before meeting Tyson, Jones hadn’t traded leather since February 2018. That was a pro bout against Scott Sigmon. Jones won that fight via unanimous decision, capturing the WBU (German version) Cruiserweight Title.
